Can we store any primitive type variable (for eg - float,char,int ) in Session scope ?

Hi Abhay,

HttpSession interface has methods to store and retreive the objects from session scope.The methods are:
setAttribute(String name, Object value)
Object getAttribute(String name)

If you want to store the premitives in the session scope you have to wrap them into corresponding object types and retreive the values by casting the return values.
For example, int values can be wrapped into Integer object and stored .

Hope this helps.

Thanks and Regards,
